This introductory chapter sets out the main contours of the epistemological disjunctivist proposal and the challenge that it poses to contemporary thinking in epistemology. In particular, it notes how this proposal does not seem to fit within the contemporary understanding of the epistemic externalism/internalism distinction. Furthermore, it is noted that this proposal offers a highly distinctive way of responding to the problem of radical scepticism.
